These Women Deliver a Masterclass in Inspiring Others
Since its inception, Avon's #WatchMeNow archive has produced hundreds of thousands of stories from all over the world, including ones from some truly inspiring Filipinas
“I was depressed, I was anxious, and I was balding.”
It might not be something one would expect to hear from Bea Benedicto, a TV host and fitness blogger known for her bubbly nature. But in an Instagram post that was far from her usual antics, Bea shared that she struggled with a vicious cycle of PCOS, alopecia, and anxiety during the quarantine.
Eventually, Bea found the courage to open up about her problem and seek help. She is now on her recovery journey, and continues to inspire people with her story.
Bea’s journey is a testament to the power of stories, and how sharing these stories can inspire others to overcome similar adversities. This effect is also the inspiration behind the #WatchMeNow gallery, an online portal made just for women’s stories.
In a video featuring the Avon’s ambassadors, the longtime activist brand calls on all women to log on to watchmenow.avon.com and share personal stories of achievement. By creating the biggest gallery of stories about women, Avon seeks to show the world that women can also be strong, courageous, and powerful.

The #WatchMeNow gallery is the latest in Avon’s long history of supporting causes for women. The focus on stories mirror Avon’s ongoing #WatchMeNow campaign, which celebrates the underdog experience of victory over adversary.
“It doesn’t always have to be an epic victory all the time—big or small, each story helps us break the barriers that hold women back,” says Anna Garces, Marketing Director for Avon Philippines “One person’s small story can inspire others to do things they didn’t think were possible.”
For every story shared, the Avon Foundation vows to donate $1 to charities that support women. Visit watchmenow.avon.com to contribute your story and make a real difference in the life of women.
